From education to employment

Annex A: ESF higher level skills offer

From 1 September 2020, we stopped adding new qualifications and their components at level 3 to the ESF higher level skills offer, unless that qualification meets the criteria to be an exemption. This is because, we will stop approving any new qualifications at level 3 and below for funding across all our funded offers, for students aged 16 and above. For more information, please see the section on the funding approval moratorium.

The ESF programme for 2014 to 2020 in England will end on 31 December 2023. We will not consider requests to approve qualifications for the ESF offer if we receive them after Monday 21 November 2022. This includes requests as part of exemptions to the moratorium.
